Pastor’s Pondering – September 26, 2018



Lord, we ask your forgiveness

Because we are not praying together

Nor working together.

You know, Lord, how jealous

We grow of another’s success.

You know, Lord, how angry we get

At another’s opinion.

You know how stubborn we are

And how insecure

And how we like to feel good,

Even when we do too little

About the suffering among us.


So, Lord, humble us

Encourage us.

Chasten us and nudge us and make us bold,

Give us deeds of power to do

And lead us into DOING THEM!


That’s my prayer, for us.
